It’s a question that all of us have thought about at least once in our lives. What is the secret to being happy?
Bringing his seventh play to the Henry Lawson Theatre, David Williamson will be exploring this age old question with his play ‘Happiness’.
Main character of the play, Roland Makepeace, is a lecturer in wellbeing, who of course has all the answers when his daughter asks for some advice.
But as Roland finds out, happiness is not as simple as he thought. In this play, Williamson explores the possibilities for happiness by putting some diverse characters in odd situations.
He mixes a few disasters, a little satire, generous humour and thought provoking lines for an entertaining piece of theatre. As always, audiences will be entertained by the contemporary themes and dialogue that reminds them of the real life situations they find themselves in every day.
‘Happiness’ opens next Friday, March 9 at 8pm, followed by performances every Friday and Saturday night until March 24. Two matinee performances will be presented on Sunday, March 11 and 18, starting at 3pm. Tickets start at $14.70 and can be purchased at www.hltheatre.com.au or by calling 4729 2996.
